My machine is not in my house at the moment and it feels weird. Mum and Dad have taken a grey nomads trip here and have left the quilting frame home, alone, unused, unattended, unloved. Why anyone would go away on a week's 4WD adventure a few days after their quilting frame arrives, I just don't understand.
But I wasn't to disagree as that meant I could go up and have a play. So I took my machine up as it has the needle down function and Mum's machine doesn't and I am more familiar with the tension on my machine than her's, so it made sense. And she said it was okay. Truelly she did! I am not lying on that one!
I have had this quilt top sitting in the cupboard since last August. It was a real quick whip up one weekend to practice accurate cutting and sewing and also as a stand by in case I needed a baby boy quilt. I think I may have jinxed myself as everyone is having girls. The last 3 baby quilts sewn have been all pink. This one is just a simple 4 patch block, perfect for practicing on.
Now you have to walk before you run, right? So I am just stippling this, just getting the hang of the frame. Observations so far, it needs a sewing machine with a bigger neck! And I need to use it on days I don't have to rush back out and pick up the girls from school. I still have another half a metre to go.... Mum and Dad are due back Thursday!
